Long term unemployment is unprecedented

Unprecedented indeed. Inevitable though. Permanent unemployment should be a good thing. Radicals, conservatives, progressives, socialists, communists, all of these much propounded systems turn the blessings of technology into a curse. The problem is not providing jobs. It is sharing the benefits of technology. To find an ideology which addresses the reality, you have to abandon the modern ones and look to the levellers of the English revolution.

job scarcity is manufactured. there is NOTHING inevitable about unemployment. are we now so far from reality we cannot see the glaringly obvious? there is an enormous amount of vital work waiting to be done in this world! simply lower the number of hours at which overtime kicks in to get rid of involuntary unemployment.
